Betting on Lucky 15s can be massively enjoyable but that’s only possible after establishing exactly what it is and how it works. The Lucky 15 market has been a way of backing four specific horses while keeping some insurance over your stake. It means that not only could you win more in returns than through merely backing them as a four-fold accumulator, but you could also get your original stake back if the bet doesn’t win outright.
How do you make a Lucky 15 bet?
The Lucky 15 market can be found at the bottom of your betslip where you’d usually enter in your stake. Rather than selecting a single or any type of treble, look for the Lucky 15 option. It will ask for fifteen times your stake, but this is due to the nature of the Lucky 15 market, where you’re backing fifteen different selections in one bet. This includes four singles, four trebles, six doubles and a four-fold accumulator; the incentive comes from the fact that you’ll get some returns even if some of your selections lose.
Methods of winning money on a Lucky 15 bet has confused those who aren’t as knowledgeable about them but it’s actually very simple. For example, if two horses win and the other two lose, you will receive winnings for the two singles and double which those horses were involved in, only not being paid out for the other two singles and all other bets that included the losing selections. Although it’s admittedly complicated, you will find additional information on The Winners Enclosure, who are known for their ability to pick insightful Lucky 15 tips on a dedicated page.
What makes up a Lucky 15?
Picking out four horse tips that fit perfectly into your Lucky 15 bet can be difficult, but you’ll be on the right track as long as you know the sorts of bookmaker odds to go for. If you include horses with small prices, your potential returns won’t be worth the usual risk that comes with betting on Lucky 15s. The same goes for big priced horses, as it can become so unlikely that none of your horses will win, resulting in a losing bet with far too much money staked on it.
It would be advised to get behind horses with a price that’s just over evens, as it tends to be a good balance of worthwhile odds and a strong likelihood of it landing. You always have the option of adding in one far riskier horse tip to your Lucky 15 bet with it not mattering that all four horses win, but you need to remember to not get carried away as it could cost you your bet.
